Tough Decision To Make
I wasn't wary of the signs but soon found out that these were the early telling signs of my pregancy. I was on a holiday trip to KL (Malaysia) and I had this frequent mood swings and was easily irritated even with the slightest drop of an apple. I thought to myself that it could be because my period could be due soon.
[ISudden increase in Body Tempertaure]
My next oblivious sign was, I kept complaining of the humid weather and was perspiring like I just finished a km run. Then I got really irritated and the people around me was kinda thinking:" is the weather that warm? Why is she complaining?" Yes, it was only me that was experiencing the sudden raise in temperature.
I also experienced dizziness easily, especially in stuffy areas or noisy places. I would feel as if I was having this headache and all I wanted was to go to a less crowded and quieter place instead.
I always felt tired and sleepy even though I slept rather early the night before.
I don't usually visit the restroom often, but there was this sudden increase for a need to clear my bladder and I don't remember drinking a lot of fluids either.
[Lose of Appetite & Increase of Appetite]
Sometimes I would feel like puking during meal time, and the next minute I would feel like eating all of a sudden. It's weird and i got hungry really easily.
[Increase in my desire for sex]
I had this increased desire for sex and I was easily aroused too.
[Cry at the drop of an Apple]
I would cry with no ryhme or reason! I was getting really emotional and I could cry just about everyday.
For some reason, i had this feeling of bloatedness at my tummy area. It seemed to have grown harder...it felt a bit stretched and slightly heavier.
[Tendancy to Sit with My Legs Apart]
It's funny but I would feel uncomfortable crossing my legs and I had this sudden habit of sitting with my legs slighlty apart.
The confirmation came when I missed my period and I did a pregnancy test with a test kit bought from the local store pharmacy. I was pregnant! The test came out positive! *double line~
To all readers, I was only 19 then and was still studying, when I found out that I was pregnant, I was happy for a moment but was depressed later on because I knew that I could not afford to keep the baby that was in me. I somehow knew that if I bring him/her into this world, I don't have the ability to bring him/her the happiness he/she deserves. I had this mixed feeling of being happy and sad at the same time, the feeling was unbearable... I wanted so badly to keep him/her but I wouldn't want him/her to suffer because of my decision to keep him/her. The life that was in me was only 5 and a half weeks old... I had to make my decision and I cried each night when I decided to have the abortion at the 7th week of my pregnancy. Why the seventh week? My doctor said it was almost invisible at the 5th week when I went for my first check-up. I had just 2 and a half weeks of personal time left with him/her and I cherised every moment of my motherhood.
The day of the abortion came, I got really upset and there was this sudden feeling that I was left all alone... the life in me was gone and loneliness came upon me. It was over, there was no turning back and my precious was lost forever.
Until today, I regret that the time just wasn't right but I was certain that my decision was 'right', in a way that I did not allow my selfish decision to start the life of a misery for both my partner and my baby. The time just wasn't right... I am still in regret that I failed life's role of a mother-to-be. I chose to lose it for unforeseen circumstances... I know some of you might hate me for my decision; not many will understand my situation, if you do... thank you =] Just to let you know that, that decision made was painful.
Preciously Mine, where ever you may be.... the closeness we once shared was memorable to keep and it was my happiest days spent being so close to you. Forgive me for such selfish decision... I'm sorry =[
TO MISTIETO MISTIE:
The HCG is a hormone found in your urine during pregnancy. It may be used to determine how far you are. It should not be anything to worry about unless it does not increase at the right time and the doctor should be able to determine that.
If I am not, what could it be?I was just wondering if anyone has been threw what I have been threw. I am now 2 months late for my period, and have taken 4 pregnancy tests and they all came back negative. I have all of the symptoms ie. tired, breasts are a cup larger and very tender (I wont even let him touch them), extreme bloating, sick on and off, extremely emotional (I cry for absolutly no reason at all) and such. I plan on going to the Dr. if I do not start within a week.
Am i pregnant this time?Well, I'm late....again. Was way late in April....period was supposed to start 25th of April but didn't come until 6th of May. 3 tests said negative, then a positive, went to the doctor and got another negative! I was so confused...then 2 days later I got my period...which was kinda short. June 6th was my LMP, now I am going on two days late and having symptoms...heartburn, nausea (doesn't happen everyday), stay feeling bloated and like my stomach is over full, teary eyed, grouchy, just feel crazy!! Last time I was late I had no symptoms at all...so I'm wondering if I'm pregnant or not...Guess its time to start the testing again *sighs
BlessingI am 26 years old, I always wanted to have a baby and live happily ever after. I recently started to date my boyfriend about a 6 months ago.
In the 6 months I have had 1 miscarriage and 1 abortion. My boyfriend is 38 years old and the father of three kids. When we first met he expressed to me that he would like to have another child but not now.
I will be 27 in 2 weeks and I am feeling the effects of being pregnant all over again. I went to my doc last month and he advised me after preforming the test that I wasn't and placed me on birth control. After about one week my symptoms worsened. I became even more sicker.
I am nauseous all the time, my breast are swollen, and the majority of my symptoms are pointing to me being pregnant. I called my doctor and told him my symptoms again.
He asked me to come in immediately and take another pregnancy test. I am so scared that now I have caused my child harm due to my first test was negative.
I made a mistake the first time and I pray that if God give me the chance again I will be the best mom ever. My boyfriend doesn't want any more kids but I haven't had any. So, this is going to be pretty hard for me but now I know that I can do this alone if possible.
I am asking everyone to pray for me that reads this and if you are reading this and you are in the same situation , please choose to keep your child. They are a gift from heaven , and never say never. No one is perfect and I had to learn this the hard way. Everyday I touch my stomach I realize that my child is gone.
I am praying that my test is positive and that God will give me a second chance..
ACW-I will keep you all posted.
